Big Screen Symposium

catetonyRecent years have seen exceptional television drama out of Australia. Like in the US and Europe, much of the most sought after acting, writing and directing talent is working across both film and TV.

Amongst her lauded film credits, writer/director Cate Shortland (SOMERSAULT, LORE) has written on the esteemed award-winning Australian dramas THE SLAP, DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, DEADLINE GALLIPOLI and THE KETTERING INCIDENT. Currently she has her own show in development with Matchbox Pictures.

Celebrated film writer/director Tony Krawitz (DEAD EUROPE) has also been lured into the invigorating world of television, his many impressive credits include directing DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND, A PLACE TO CALL HOME, and most recently atmospheric mystery THE KETTERING INCIDENT.

Join Cate & Tony as they provide us a writer’s and director’s behind the scenes perspective on the crafting of high-end television across the ditch.

Moderated by Max Currie.
